NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A man has been arrested in connection to a deadly shooting at an apartment complex last week.

Shots rang out at the Summerwind Apartments on Bell Road last Tuesday.

When officers got to the scene, they say they found 22-year-old Michael Pillow dead.

Police say Eric Carter and Pillow got into an argument before the shooting. Carter lived at the apartment complex and Pillow was there visiting a relative.

Detectives say Carter challenged Pillow to a fight and then went to his car and got out an AK-47 and when Pillow came outside, Carter allegedly opened fire on him.

Carter has been charged with criminal homicide and is being held on a $1 million bond.
